Alert users that Gpg4win 2.2.2 does not work on Windows XP!

I strongly suggest include a statement on its download page that Gpg4win 2.2.2 does not work on Windows XP but that Gpg4win 2.1.1 does. That will save visitors who still run XP and think Gpg4win is neat software hours of frustration.

Gpg4win 2.2.2 has a known bug making it impossible to use on Windows XP. The bug is acknowledged at near the end of the post:

The problem is indeed with us. With the update of glib we’ve included a change in glib that makes use of rand_s in the crt.

I spent four hours attempting to make 2.2.2 work on Windows XP and then searching for answers. I think a warning for XP owners is in order.

We put the effort into to publishing a fixed 2.2.3. :slight_smile:
And it shouldn’t be long now.

Thanks for the suggestion!

It’s out now. Can you confirm that it’s working again for you, too?
